Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | "This is my block"

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 236 calls for service between Friday, May 27 and Saturday, June 4. Below are selected reports.

At 8:43 a.m. Friday, May 27 in Brinnon, a caller said someone tried to siphon gas and also tried to take tools that had been left inside the vehicle.

Authorities received other reports of gas being stolen in the area.

At 8:53 p.m. Friday, May 27 in Port Hadlock, emergency dispatchers received multiple reports of five or six juveniles who were yelling at each other and appeared to be getting ready to fight.

It was unknown what started the argument.

One of the youths involved said the dispute started at the library, and said a vehicle had been following them for the past hour.

One caller said a black rifle in a black case was involved in the dispute, and described some of the youths riding in a strange truck.

Another caller reported people yelling nearby.

Deputies made contact with those involved in the dispute and it wasn’t immediately clear how the whole thing got started.

Some of the youths were apparently on bikes at the end of Shotwell Place when they were confronted by others in a truck.

An issue at the library prompted the confrontation.

The youths also indicated a rifle had been involved, but once deputies started asking specific questions about the firearm, the story changed to a black gun case but not a firearm.

No direct threats had been made, only a comment of “Don’t mess with me.”

One person made a statement of “What are you doing on my block?” or something to that nature when another responded, “This is my block.”

Parents of some of the youth arrived at the scene and were told there was no firearm involved. A deputy searched a vehicle and found no guns.

All of the youths were advised that their actions had not been ideal, and they all had the ability to walk away to diffuse the situation.

At 7:58 a.m. Saturday, May 28 in Chimacum, a theft was reported overnight.

Authorities were told that someone had broken into the money box at the Red Dog farm stand, and a couple hundred dollars was likely missing. The caller said it was the third time the box had been broken into.

A deputy investigated and found the money had been properly collected at 5 p.m. and there was no indication that there had been any sales afterward.

A farmer said they were going to invest in security cameras.
